If I told you there was a product that could relax a stressed out momma, soothe a fussy baby, lull a toddler to sleep would you want to know what it is? Well I’m not tellin’ – Nanananana! Just kiddin’, hehe. I don’t wanna leave you hanging any longer so this amazing product I speak of is a “My Beating Heart.”
So what exactly is a “My Beating Heart“? Glad you asked! It is a soft huggable heart with a soothing heartbeat you can actually feel. It’s designed to help you relax, daydream, meditate, and take delicious naps. When you hold the heart against your chest you will notice your own heartbeat begin to sync with the My Beating Heart’s heartbeat. Think of holding a newborn baby against your chest or laying with your significant other – as your heartbeats synchronize tension melts out of your body and you are able to relax. This is exactly what the My Beating Heart does! An amazing thing about My Beating Heart is that everytime you turn it on, an entirely unique heartbeat rhythm is created. In fact, every rhythm itself gradually changes and subtly dances, algorithically modelling the heartbeat in a deep meditative state. This isn’t a pre-recorded rhythm and this isn’t a “heartbeat sound.” This is a physical heartbeat that realistically changes over time. My sister-in-law’s fiance was holding the heart and he even said that he could feel his heartbeat syncing with the My Beating Heart! There are two different types of hearts available. The one we received to review is the My Little Beating Heart which is suitable for chidren from birth on.
Sugar wasn’t too fond of the heart immediately, but is has grown on her. However her cousin Spice loved it the moment she picked it up! Dilly likes laying on it too. I snapped some pictures of the girls loving on the My Beating Heart.
The My Little Beating Heart has a few features that make it very baby/toddler friendly which I absolutely love. One being that at the top of the heart is a Velcro strap that can be attached to strollers for maximum portability and to avoid the dreaded pick up game. The most important feature to make the My Beating Heart child friendly – in my opinion – is that the outside cover is machine washable. Simply separate the Velcro cover on the back and slip the cover off. No worries if your little one drools, spits up, or snots on their heart, hehe. I also love how the heart is turned on and off – by the tag! Almost every child I have ever come in contact with loves tags and so this makes perfect sense. All you have to do is squeeze the heart image on the tag. It will blink and then spark to life. Once it is turned on you can squeeze the tag again to turn it off or it will automatically shut off after 20 minutes. In the picture below you can see Dilly turning her My Beating Heart on and off – and on and off – and on and off – hehe.
